AWS Partner Network (APN) Blog

Want to Learn More about the APN? Come Visit Our Team at the AWS Pop-up Loft on February 19th!

In addition to the numerous in-person resources readily available for those interested in AWS at the AWS Pop-up Loft (such as the ability to work 1:1 with a member of the AWS technical team), the Loft hosts a number of special events on a wide range of topics. Next Thursday, February 19th, we’re excited to host our very own APN event at the AWS Pop-up Loft!


Jump Start Your AWS Practice – Understand the Building Blocks of the AWS Partner Network (APN) 

Whether you’re a new APN Partner looking for more of an introduction on everything the APN and AWS has to offer, or an established APN Partner who wants to learn more about utilizing specific APN and AWS Programs and resources, we welcome you to join us at the APN Pop-up Loft for an interactive afternoon with the APN team. From 2pm – 6pm, we’ll be providing you with an overview of the various programs closely tied to APN Partner success. We’ll have team members on hand from teams across AWS to answer many of your questions about working as an APN Partner, and we’ll provide you with assistance in learning how to effectively utilize the resources we make available to APN Partners.

This will be a great opportunity for you to engage in-person with AWS team members to discuss how APN and AWS Programs can be leveraged to build a thriving AWS offering and practice. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other APN Consulting and Technology Partners to hear their stories and to share best practices. At the end of the day, we encourage you to stick around for happy hour and additional Q&A.

There will be a number of APN and AWS teams at the event for you to chat with and engage. Come join us, and learn more about:

  • The APN Program: Members of the APN Program team will discuss APN Partner enablement and the APN Partner journey. We’ll discuss APN Benefits and APN Programs, dive into the APN requirements, and will discuss the value of APN Competencies, along with additional topics
  • The AWS Government Partner Program: Come learn about the AWS Government Partner Program, which provides high-value, government-focused marketing, technical, and business enablement tools to support APN Partners who serve the unique needs of government customers

Additionally, we’ll have Partner Solutions Architects (SAs) joining us. Our Partner SAs work with APN Partners on a day-to-day basis, and are great resources for you to utilize as you work with the AWS platform.

We can’t wait to meet you on the 19th in San Francisco!
